I have recently started spending a lot more time in the sea. I'm having a great time but my hair is not. It's getting really dry and fluffy, in fact it looks and feels like candy floss/fairy floss.

I have tried putting olive oil in my hair before I go in, it's helped a little but if I'm in the water for more than half an hour even my own kids are laughing at my hair .

I rinse it really well when I get out and put conditioner into it before I even leave the beach so it's in ok condition generally, just trying to figure out what to do with it whilst in the sea/beach.

I'd try tying it up but to date all that's happened is the sea has ripped the elastics out of my hair.

suggestions on a postcard to -you with the funny hair on the beach
3a,fine.
using : a varied assortment till I work out what the heck is going on
scrunch or plop with old t shirt
Garnier endurance hold gel

Mop clean system- hair feels stripped after using it. Anyone want it? then I can justify getting something different.
